Keith Richards, was born on December 18, 1943 at the Livingstone Hospital in the town of Dartford, in the north-west of the state of Kent, England.
In 1960, Keith and Mick met casually at a London subway station. While Jagger was attending the London School of Economics, 13 Richards recognized him and began to speak. Mick had Chuck Berry, Little Walter and Muddy Waters LP under his arm because, like Keith, he was a fan of the American R & B. The future singer had requested to the United States these LP, thing that surprised to the guitarist because these materials were very rare in Great Britain.
Beginning in 1968 they began to live a very satisfactory stage musically speaking. That same year they publish the first of those considered by the music critics best albums of the band: Beggars Banquet, accompanied by a television program titled The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus, in which Richards was united to John Lennon, Eric Clapton and Mitch Mitchell to form the supergroup The Dirty Mac, who performed The Beatles’ “Yer Blues” during his performance.
